Previews of both teams
Sun Risers Hyderabad:
The return of David Warner has boosted the team spirit. but after the injury of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the team has somehow lost its spot, which was clearly visible in the last match against MI. Kumar’s replacement Sandeep Sharma took the major wicket of Rohit Sharma.SRH is known for their best bowlers. Sunrisers at present have NRR (net run-rate) of -0.417 and there is no room for further loss if they want to be in finals. They need to change their batting line up. As Kane Williamson has not been able to impress the viewers after his first match performance.
Probable Playing XIs: David Warner (C)
Kane Williamson, Rashid Khan, Khaleel Ahmed, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Abdul Samad, Sanjay Yadav, Sandeep Sharma, Thangarasu Natarajan, Abhishek Sharma.
Kings XI Punjab:
No one would have expected that KXIP will be at the bottom of ladder, despite their wonderful winning against RCB. KXIP have the best batting unit other than all franchises. It’s the bowling i.e. bothering them; there isn’t any good bowler we have seen till now. They were not able to take even a single wicket in the match against CSK. KL Rahul and Mayank Aggarwal is among the top 3 highest run scorers. KXIP are under a lot of pressure this time and they need to raise their bowling levels to compete.
Probable Playing XIs: KL Rahul (WK/ C)
Chris Gayle. Middle-order: Mayank Agarwal, Nicholas Pooran, Mandeep Singh, Darshan Nalkhande. All-rounder: Mujeeb ur Rahman. Bowlers: Sheldon Cottrell, Mohammed Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, Ishan Porel.
Best batsman to watch:
KL Rahul (KXIP)
Mayank Aggarwal (KXIP)
Manish Pandey (SRH)
David Warner (SRH)
Best Bowlers to watch:
Khaleel Ahmed (SRH)
Rashid Khan (SRH)
Mohammed Shami (KXIP)

KXIP need to fix many things before they enter battleground like Batting order and also they lack good bowlers the main reason they are consistently losing. So as per our analysis, Sun Risers Hyderabad will win.
